Community panels are a highly effective tool for deliberative engagement.
They invite people from across a community to come together as experts in the issues that affect them. Diversity of experience and diversity of perspective is highly valuable in panel discussions, but it comes with risks. As facilitators, we need to create a safe meeting space where conflicting and unpopular opinions can be talked about respectfully to enrich the group’s understanding.
This guide explores some practices to create supportive and productive meetings for community panels.
